What is that little white tab on the inside rim of a new Inn

Postby aerohusker » Tue Dec 18, 2012 11:49 pm

...ok, so here's a dumb question: What is that little white tab on the inside rim of a new Innova disc?

thanks

I think spike is correct. I imagine if they stack them warm from the press without the sticker, it's going to deform the dome when they start sucking on each other.

Partially true. The little tabs do, indeed, keep the discs from suctioning together, but there is WAY more to it…

During the wild & wooly late '60s in southern California, Dave Dunipace became friends with a gonzo chemist named Owsley Stanley. Stanley became quite a sensation in the counterculture for his ingenious manufacture of extremely pure LSD, and supplied the likes of Ken Kesey & his Merry Pranksters, novelist Tom Wolfe, & The Grateful Dead. After sampling this pharmaceutical-grade hallucinogen, Dunipace had a vision of a triangular-edged flying saucer bouncing about between trees & soaring high through the California sunshine. This trip really lodged in his mind, twisting & turning until its maddening flashbackiness prompted him, in 1983, to attempt to manufacture these flying discs.

After a few fits & starts, Dunipace stumbled upon an acceptable manufacturing technique, but how was he to market these strange objects? After courting the "extreme sports" and "family fun" crowds with no apparent success, he decided to return to his roots & sell to the burned-out refugees of the "Summer of Love", aging flower children, and their closely related species, the privileged, college-aged 1960s revivalists.

Certain of his target audience's love of ergoline alkaloids, Dunipace turned to his old pal Stanley, asking him to supply a few thousand self-adhesive "hits" of his best product to unobtrusively apply to his flying discs, cunningly disguised as an anti-pressure-deformation device. He unleashed word through the SoCal underground of the existence of these free bonuses, and sales skyrocketed. Skyrocketed so much, in fact, that dirty hippie Dunipace's garage company quickly became a very large toy manufacturer, and he became a wealthy man.

With a nod to tradition & the initial inspiration for his empire - and not to look a gift horse in the mouth - Innova Discs continues the tradition of attaching a single tab of first-rate LSD to each disc it manufactures & sells to this day. Next time you get one, peel it off, place it on your tongue, and wait a few minutes to find out why Innova really is "The Choice of Champions".

Right answer, wrong reason.

Somewhere back around 2002-2003 someone asked about the sticker in one of the "Ask Dave Dunipace about Innova" threads over on pdga.com. Try googling "white sticker" temperature site:pdga.com

If you meant that har har Ray is gonna get sued for the imaginative joke by Dave or Innova you are a bad bad person :-)
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.
